I have a streaming movie playing on a page through an embedded Windows Media Player.
Rather than having it display in plain black during the initial buffering period, is it possible to display: the first frame; or a separate image; or even a wait/progress cursor during this time?
Or is the only option to show that something is happening by including the StatusBar?
I undestand that flash players display the first frame during the initial buffering. Unfortunately I have to use Windows Media Player to stream WMV content for this project.
